Library of St. Florian Monastery in Austria
The library of this monastery is one of the oldest and most impressive in Austria. Baroque in style, its ceiling is sumptuously decorated with frescoes by Bartolomeo Altomonte (figures) and Antonio Tassi (architectural painting). These works symbolically depict the union of virtue and science under the protection of religion. The library has 150,000 volumes, most of which date back to before 1900.
